Windows 7: WordPad on W7

WordPad on W7

On the Word Pad there is a icon for emailing. I can't seem to get this to work. Is there a special default that must be used for this to function.

Thanks

Hi

the only thing you need to do to get wordpad to work is to make an email client (WLM) the default app for emails. Just tried it on mine. didnt work until I made windows live mail the default email app (also use thunderbird). As soon as i did it opened a windows live mail message window

Hello Enigma,

The only requirement is to have a email client program (ex: Windows Live Mail) installed and with it set as the default program. Afterwards, when you click on the icon, it should open a "Send To" compose email message box with your default email program with the conents in WordPad.

Hope this helps,

wordpad
I just got Windows 7 Premium home. I can't find wordpad or any of the accessories. I've tried searching. Where are they? If they were removed for some inexplicable reason, where can I downloade wordpad? I couldn't find that either when I searched Microsoft.
